Chief of Staff Applications

To our fellow students,

Our highest priority as an Executive Board and as a Student Union is to ensure that we are putting the best interests of the student body at the forefront of everything that we do. As we reflect on the goals we have set out to accomplish this year, our progress thus far, and the initiatives we have picked up along the way, we seek to maintain that expectation for ourselves.  At this time, we believe that we need additional support to carry out the duties and initiatives we have undertaken on your behalf. Thus, today, we are writing to invite you to apply to the Student Union Chief of Staff role.

The Chief of Staff will have the ability to support Student Union in several areas.  Below, you can find a brief description of the role.

  • Recruitment, Retention & Personnel

    • Implementation of Entrance & Exit Interviews

    • Support for facilitations in order for SU entities to meet the 100% membership diversity and relationship & sexual violence training benchmark

    • Coordination of spring appointed position recruitment

    • Support for campus partners and groups in the request process

  • Special Events and Projects

    • Coordination of the Student Union roundtable series

    • Planning for fundraising events


Applicants should not read the above list and feel as though they must have a firm understanding of each responsibility.  The Chief of Staff will work in conjunction with the entirety of the 52nd Student Union Executive Board and can expect to be supported by our team.  The most important qualities to consider when deciding to apply are good project management skills, initiative, and communication.
